sanity through sanitization

I don’t consider myself much of a germaphobe.  I wash my hands before preparing food and I do my best to be mindful of most potential disease causing hazards, but I’m not one of those people who won’t go near you if you’re sick (that’s just rude) or who uses paper towel to open bathroom doors and then awkwardly maneuvers to throw it out while half out the door (that’s just annoying.)  But I do have an irrational obsession with certain things being clean, and one of those things is my toothbrush.  I’ll just tell you right now, I’m totally grossed out by people who let their toothbrushes get to the point of fraying bristles and I do not think it’s cute at all to share with your significant other.  It just makes sense to me that something you use to clean the inside of your mouth should be clean itself; otherwise it feels like you’re just moving the stuff around.  Very scientific, I know.  Anyway, why am I even talking about my nonsensical neuroses?  Well I discovered a product that proves that I’m not the only one!  And it’s super space age and cool.  I think if Cally had ever made it to dental school, she definitely would have advised her patients to get – are you ready? – a Violight UV toothbrush sanitizer. Yes, it is mandatory that you say it with a lisp because it’s that nerdy.  Ready?  Toothbrutsh tshanitither.  And if that’s not nerdy enough for you, then you’ll have to check out the “dental spa.” It’s like a UV jacuzzi for your retainer. I know it sounds too good to be true, but I’m telling you, it’s true, and it’s awesome.  You’ll have no excuse not to wear it anymore and, on the upside, your parents won’t be pissed for spending all that money on dental perfection only to have you squander it with nightly negligence. violight22
